Brief Description

The CORE program targets families with children (ages 0-19 years) in transition such as those who are living in homeless shelters, temporary or doubled-up housing situations, or in foster care situations. The purpose is to improve the stability and well-being for children and families by providing a wide range of wrap-around services to improve conditions that place children and families living in transition at-risk for health, social, psychological, and safety concerns. The CORE program helps families with: coordination of medical care for their children; identification of resources that will facilitate family function and stability including counseling; support with recovery from substance abuse; and referral and assistance with completing housing applications.
